What is Women’s Health Physiotherapy?
Women’s Health Physiotherapy is the rehabilitation of disorders relating to the pelvis and pelvic floor muscles.
- problems with control of your bladder (urinary incontinence) or bowel (anal incontinence)
- pelvic organ prolapse
- problems during or after pregnancy, e.g. pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain or low back pain or separation of your abdominal muscles (diastasis rectus abdominis)
- Chronic pelvic pain – pain experienced in the pelvic area (below the belly button and above the hips) lasting six months or longer
Women’s Health Physiotherapists are Physiotherapists who have undergone specialist postgraduate training to enable them to address the specific and unique needs of women with these conditions.
